Bikers in Sturgis salute the leader of their pack: President Trump

(STURGIS, SOUTH DAKOTA) On Hogs and Indians, they rumble in from all points on the compass and explode the population of Sturgis, South Dakota, from less than 7,000 to nearly half a million.
For one week each summer, they create a noisy pop-up city unlike any other and as the nation closes in on midterm elections, they lay bare America's political divides.
While the modern-day biker tribe is vast and varied, containing more middle-aged couples than brawling outlaws, one can go hours -- or days -- without seeing a person of color in the crowds here at one of the world's largest biker rallies. In Sturgis, the definition of diversity is a white guy on a foreign bike.
The shooting ranges and bikini contests operate free from debate over gun control and #MeToo. And while other parts of the country agonize over his tumultuous presidency, the leader of this pack is Donald Trump.
"I like what Trump's doing but it seems like Congress and stuff is kinda' fightin' him," John Sands tells me through a full-face skull mask. The postal worker rides up from Kentucky each year, dressed in skeleton garb, posing for pictures with a bony middle finger raised for comedic effect. "I think (Congress) should have some term limits," he says. "Two, maybe four years." Not allowing incumbents to run for re-election time after time would end the phenomenon of career politicians, he adds.
This is not the first time or place where perception trumps data, but while America wrestles with stagnant wages, spiraling health costs and income inequality, many here see the giant crowds as an indicator of booming consumer confidence.

They have no idea whats about to hit them. None.
The next two years are going to be great fun.
Blatant commie speak. Roaring economies are never good enough for quislings who want to own our economic and political system.
“America wrestles with stagnant wages, spiraling health costs and income inequality,”
Writer is a CNN hack, could you tell?

KRTV got the story from: CNN Wire
This report doesnt have a bias slant at all. Refreshing. /sarc
CNN’S NEGATIVE BIAS is waking up the country. People are seeing through the cover-ups and lies. We learn from conflict. It is an alarm clock; a wake up call!
I was shocked it was cnn. The overtly biased bullish!t did not get presented until the second or third sentence instead of the first.
This article is a perfect example of what Donald Trump deems fake news. It is supposed to be a straight news story and yet time and again the ‘reporter’ interjects his own personal bias into the story.
As Joe Friday might say, just the facts ma’am (in this case sir....)
Yeah, because bikers have no idea what’s going on in the real world...
Miss Sarah Palin is there.
Im sure she was a hit
CNN Whack Job ,,,
Yup, it’s in there.
One member expresses a fondness for Hilary Clinton, but won’t say so when the camera is rolling, and another groans when I bring up the topic of Trump.
“Because I’m a small business owner, I tend to keep my mouth shut about politics,” Mich George says. She runs Moto F.A.M., a nonprofit...
This struck me. The reporters idea of a small business is a nonprofit. Also not surprised that the Clinton supporter runs a nonprofit.
Something tells me there was no Antifa present.
lol that would have been funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
None of the pics I posted were likely from this recent event. They were just of typical patriotic biker groups.
